As members of Psychoactive - Mental Health Professionals for Human Rights, we wish to join our colleagues from the Arab Psychological Association in condemning the Israeli military activity within the Gaza Strip and the massive sniper fire that was directed at unarmed protesters during the Great Return March in Gaza. We express our deep sorrow for the hurt inflicted on Palestinian protesters and are gravely concerned about the disastrous physical and psychological consequences of the massive use of arms against unarmed people.
The events in Gaza have taken place in the context of a continuous siege that has severely limited the residents’ freedom of movement and their political rights, in addition to reducing their access to drinkable water, electricity and medical treatment. On the backdrop of the grave suffering caused by these conditions, and the lack of prospects for a better future, many Gazan Palestinians feel the need to resist even if that means risking their lives. In situations of continuous oppression, witnessing and validation of the traumatic experiences are of great importance. When the suffering is not recognized, the psychological damage is likely to be particularly pervasive. We therefore urge mental health professionals everywhere to inquire into the living conditions in besieged Gaza. Understanding what life is like under siege is indispensable for understanding the Palestinian resistance.
As mental health professionals, we know that ongoing exposure to warfare and extreme stress is bound to be destructive for the physical and the psychological health of the people of Gaza. In particular, the children of Gaza, whose entire lives have been shaped by repeated traumatization, deprivation and loss, are bound to grow up feeling deep despair. We must acknowledge that as – Jewish-Israeli society – we bear a great deal of the responsibility for the suffering of the Palestinians and that our actions as well as our silent complicity have helped deepen and perpetuate their despair. We also need to heavily ponder the way in which our society endangers the mental health of the Israeli young people who, as soldiers, are delegated to carry out the policies of the occupation and siege, including live fire at unarmed protesters who pose no threat to them. We are exposing these young adults to the deleterious psychological effects of being perpetrators of violence, including the likelihood of developing PTSD.
In addition to traumatizing Israeli soldiers, the policies of occupation and siege cause broad harm to the Israeli society, by encouraging dehumanization of others and dissociation from their suffering. We warn against heavy reliance by our society on the psychological mechanisms of splitting and projection, which makes it difficult for us as individuals and the collective to feel compassion or empathy for the Palestinians in Gaza and take responsibility for our actions and inaction. These mechanisms, when extensively used, are dangerous on both the intrapsychic and social levels.
We urge all mental health professionals in Israel and around the world to join us in viewing this situation as one that requires our ethical involvement and to raise their voices in clear opposition to the occupation and siege, decrying their disastrous consequences for both Palestinians and Israelis. We hope that it may be possible to recognize the evil that is within us, instead of projecting it fully onto the other and maintaining security and comfort while only a short distance away from us, nearly two million men, women, children and infants are experiencing unimaginable suffering, both physical and mental.
